"Enriching Education through Exciting Experiences and Exploration"
The After School Enrichment Program provides a warm, caring environment beyond school hours where your children have the opportunity to play with school friends and get homework out of the way before the family sits down to dinner. ASEP offers exciting activities which stimulate children to be healthier and happier, including sports, art activities and computer exploration. After School Enrichment Programs operate in CMS schools, utilizing age-appropriate materials and equipment for students. From the media center to the playground, students spend out-of-school hours in safe and stimulating environments. Using a curriculum correlated with the NC Standard Course of Study, ASEP Site Coordinators, school administrators and teachers work together to ensure that their ASEP programs supplement the learning taking place during the school day.
Besides academic support, the ASEP program focuses on the development of students’ social skills. To see After School at a glance click on the ASEP Fact Sheet.
